A permanent work in progress, this research avenue is divided into three main pillars: the education of law students, the methodology and epistemology of legal research and, the conception of law and of the lawyer’s role underpinning the evolution in the first two pillars. Through a combination of legal, sociological, philosophical, and political science approaches, the Seminar scrutinises the evolution of law in academia and practice, as well as the links between these two “worlds”. From practical questions (how to teach, how to organise legal curricula) to epistemological questions (how to approach legal research and its link to humanities and social science), this project lays the ground for both a reflection on the Seminar’s very identity and an analysis of the challenges faced by universities in the 21st century.
